top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>On Saturday, October 24th, Stair Galleries (in Hudson, NY) will host a single auction of the Hunt Slonem Collection from Edgewood Terrace. In case you aren’t familiar, Hunt Slonem is a New York artist known for his exotic, vibrantly colored, neo-expressionist paintings and incredible collection of 19th Century gothic revival furniture which has filled his home – the historic Cordts mansion in Kingston, NY – for the past eight years. Hunt has had over 150 solo exhibitions and over 75 museums include his work in their collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. He is adored by celebrity collectors including Sharon Stone, Gina Gershon, Brooke Shields, Julianne Moore, Mandy Moore, Kate Hudson and J.Lo to name a few.
